Bill of Lading: The Art & Poetry of Roger Martin

Feb. 14, 2015 — June 28, 2015

Bill of Lading explored the art and poetry of Rockport native Roger Martin (1925-2015). A founder of Montserrat College of Art and a long-time member of its faculty, the town of Rockport’s first Poet Laureate and compiler of three books celebrating the people and poetry of his hometown, and a highly respected graphic artist, illustrator and painter, Roger Martin has long been one of Cape Ann’s most distinguished and creative individuals. The exhibit included artwork from the Museum’s holdings as well as from private collections.
